A Visit to Gatesville

I love doing school visits because I never know what to expect. My first trip after the holidays was to Gatesville, Texas, a small town near Waco. I had no idea that I would actually be visiting Camp Half-Blood! The students and staff had worked so hard to transform their school into camp. The classrooms turned into cabins. Many of the sixth graders were dressed as characters from the book. Amazing artwork was everywhere. It was just an incredible day. To see pictures of the projects they created, click here. And thanks, Gatesville, for a perfect school visit!
